Order of the Secret Monitor


Or the Brotherhood of David and Jonathon.

The Secret Monitor was originally an American side degree conferred by one Mason on another. It came to the United Kingdom around 1875.

A Grand Council was formed in 1887. At the same time additions were made to the ritual, to make three degrees, namely Secret Monitor, Prince and Supreme Ruler.

The ritual is based on the circumstances surrounding David and Jonathon and their friendship.
